Just a flying update, to provide some links of interest (with little-to-no comment):
- Firefox 3.1’s release date has been pushed back a little; I understand that, CSS-wise, Transforms and Web Fonts are the current blockers.
- John Resig takes a look at the implementation of border-image in FF 3.1 (with examples supplied by us)
- The CSS Marquee module has made it to Working Draft status. And now, with the rise of the mobile web and limited screen size, it actually has a practical implementation.
A first Alpha of Mozilla’s new browser is due for release shortly (probably tomorrow). Firefox 3 saw a lot of work go into speed, stability and the interface, but was slightly disappointing for front-end developers and saw CSS implementation overtaken by Safari and Opera.
3.1 will make up for that with a whole raft of features on their way. Implemented in the current nightlies (and therefore, most likely, in the Alpha) are:
Planned for implementation but not yet landed features include:
For the stat-hungry amongst us, 3.1 currently scores 84 on the Acid 3 test, and the implementation of Media Queries should take that up to 85.
There’s no indication of it, but I personally would like to see their border-radius syntax brought into line with the standard, and Transitions implemented to complement Transforms. I’ve been playing with Transitions recently, and they’re very cool.
What new CSS features would you like to see in Firefox 3.1?
